Daniel 6:16-23 The King gave the order, and they brought Daniel and threw him into the lions’ den. The king said to Daniel, “May your God, whom you serve continually, rescue you!”
A stone was brought and placed over the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the rings of his nobles, so that Daniel’s situation might not be changed…
At the first light of dawn, the king got up and hurried to the lions’ den. When he came near the den, he called to Daniel in an anguished voice, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?”
Daniel answered, “May the king live forever! My God sent his angel, and he calmed the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight. Nor have I ever done any wrong before you, Your Majesty.”
The king was overjoyed and gave orders to let Daniel out of the den. And when Daniel was led from the den, no wound was found on him, because he had trusted in his God.
2Kings 2:23-24 “From there Professor X went up to the town of Bethel. As he was traveling along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. ‘Get out of here, baldy!’ they said. ‘Get out of here, baldy!’ He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two she-bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.”
Homer took wood for the burnt offering and placed it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them went on together. Bart spoke up and said to his father Homer, “Father?”
“Yes, my son?” Homer replied.
“The fire and wood are here,” Bart said, “but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”
Homer answered, “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them went on together.
When they reached the place God had told him about, Homer built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound Bart and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son….
SPOILER ALERT- God did stop Homer right before he stuck the knife in Bart and told him he was just kidding and wanted to see how far Homer would go. He then gave him a lamb that was caught in a thicket. They killed it together but then Homer cut off Bart’s foreskin to show God he still wanted to hurt his son in His name. The end!
Genesis 15:5 God took him outside and said, “Now look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” And God said to him, “So shall your descendants be so numerous”
Here is a triptych I did of the evolutionary changes of intelligent life on Saturn. Here are the color and original black and white line work. This piece is available upon request if you like it. Look closely and you will see how that some Saturians went somewhere else too.
This was a lot of fun to draw and I hope to make some more like these one day. If you like this, let me know what else you would like to see evolve on paper.
